The Miami Hurricanes were on the verge of earning a spot in the College Football Playoff last fall. How would they do in 2018 if the field had 64 teams? ESPN projected that theory.

Losses to Pittsburgh in the regular season finale and Clemson in the ACC Championship game derailed any chance the Miami Hurricanes had of earning a berth in the 2017 College Football Playoff.

What if the field was expanded? Would Miami have received a bid in an eight-team playoff? How about 12 with the top four getting byes? They certainly would have been in with 16 teams or more.

The Hurricanes enter the 2018 season with a lot of questions marks and position groups to rebuild. Mark Richt has gotten the fan base excited again and hopeful for runs at potential National Championships during his tenure.

ESPN projected a 64 team Football Bowl Subdivision College Football Playoff. It’s highly unlikely that the number of teams would ever reach that many. The FCS currently has 24 teams in their playoff.

It would take six weeks to complete the playoffs with 64 teams in it. It would likely start in the second week of December and stretch into the second week of January.The Semifinals and finals would compete with the first two weeks of the NFL Playoffs for media attention.
